June is the month with multiple mega camps across the college football recruiting landscape. It’s a time for coaching staff’s to get a look at a large group of prospects and also time when a lot of recruits see their recruitment take the next step.

While most programs are still looking for their quarterback in the class of 2023, the UNC football program already has its guy in Tad Hudson. The North Carolina native committed to Mack Brown and the Tar Heels back in August, giving them their first commitment in the 2023 class.

Since then, he continues to impress and did so on Day 1 of the Overtime OT7 national camp in Las Vegas this week, according to 247Sports football recruiting analyst Greg Biggins.

The North Carolina commit, playing for Carolina Stars, has what you call ‘easy velocity’ and the ball really jumps out of his hand with minimal effort. He doesn’t need a wind up or a long release to get it out and he showed the ability to put the ball anywhere he wanted. He also looked good physically, having leaned out a bit over the last year and his game is trending in the right direction.

Hudson is a four-star prospect ranked No. 332 in the 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s ranked as the No. 18 overall quarterback.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound threw for 2,601 yards as a junior with 30 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. He completed 56.3 percent of his passes.

247Sports national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn projects Hudson as a multi-year starter and someone who has late round NFL draft potential.
